How do I bring my own phone from Boost to another carrier?

When switching carriers with a Boost Mobile phone, you need to make sure your device is unlocked and you have no outstanding fees on your device. You also need to make sure you are switching to a carrier compatible with your CDMA Boost Mobile device.

Your Boost phone will only work with a selection of carriers so you need to check first before you commit to a new plan or switching carrier.

Use this link to check your devices compatibility. This compatibility checker will show you which carriers you can use your device with.

Remember that you can port your number to your new carrier - make sure that you dont disconnect or cancel service with Boost until you've got your new plan set up with the new carrier (otherwise you may lose your number)

You can see all of the carriers that you can switch to here - BYO plans that work with an unlocked Boost phone 

Sprint and AT&T run on CDMA technology, T-Mobile and AT&T operate on GSM - as a general rule you wont be able to use your CDMA phone on a GSM network (some new iPhone 6s and Nexus phones may however work but you need to check)
